Community, UK Riding, Random
One of the many great thing about the cycling community and the friends we meet through racing, riding, and blogging, is folks hooking up sharing info, hospitality, and resources to make everyone's ride more fun and more producive. Just wanted to put that out there.
I've met a lot of great folks in the past few years and love that through blogging and racing many of us feel like our world of racing is a tight collection of like minded folks, helping each other out and sharing the ride.
One of the folks I met through the web is my Brit friend Craig (UKraig) that I met through a post on Road Bike Review DOT com. Ended up e mailing some info about a frame I was looking at, yada, yada, yada. Now he's my British pen pal. Well Craig is a roadie (for that he is forgiven, ha!) and is going to be video blogging his journey to fitness as he and his friend Trevor ride through the hills of England getting themselves in shape for the their coming season full of major events.
You can check it out here and see. Good luck Craig and enjoy the ride. Take a look... HERE to see some remarkable British landscapes and some roads that look only slightly wider than some of the single track we ride. Crack on!!
In other Blog news. I read a post over on Belgium Knee Warmers that ROCKED! Radio Freddy wrote a bit about Boonen and his Specialized issues this season that is one of the best articles I've seen on a blog lately. Great job Freddy! This Sunday should tell us a lot about his Boonen's "custom" frame.
Made some BAD ASS white pizza tonight. Yum-OHHHHHHHHHHH! Washed down with Sierra Nevada or three.
Side note: Got an oil change/tire rotation on the Soob today. What kind of world do we live in that as I walke into the Goodyear Tire store there's a sign that says "WEAPONS ARE NOT PERMITTED IN STORE"?? What are we the old f*cking West???
Not sure what tomorrow holds, road, trail, trainer, more rest? Who knows??
